A New Year, A New Challenge For Myself............And You!

     I have to say that 2015 was probably the best year that I can remember happening. So many changes took place and I finally found peace. As New Years rapidly approaches I can't help but to think of the amazing things that sit in my path. 
     The last 3 months Beachbody and the 21 Day Fix became a big part of my life. It all started with a friend of mine sending me the program. Honestly I was thinking that this would really just be a neat new thing to try and maybe lose a little weight. See back in September that is all it was to me. If I could lose these last 5 pounds I would be happy, happy with the way I looked, and happy with myself. The 5 pounds vanished during the Labor Day Fix Challenge, and I looked in the mirror and saw 5 more pounds. My second round I began to focus on something different as I had decided to become a Beachbody coach. I decided to focus on seeing what my body could do, instead of what my body could look like, or what that imaginary number on the scale would tell me. In doing this I found something that meant so much more, I found a sense of who I was, the strength I actually had, and my purpose in life. 

It's funny every day we spend hiding things, how we feel, what we look like, our fear.......We take pictures that show our comfort zones and not who we really are. In 2016 I have vowed to challenge myself to the next level. I will admit with the Holidays I have my highs and lows on eating and working out. lol I mean, I like food who doesn't? 
This year I am challenging myself, and you if you'll join me, to 365 days of Beachbody. I am not saying hey buy this program, hey buy this supplement....what I am asking is for the next year you join me in challenging yourself daily to make a change in your life, to step outside your comfort zone!  Beachbody has many free accounts and challenges. Free recipes and meal planners. Step out of your comfort zone with me :) even if it is trying a new food, or adding a cup of water to your day. I am including all my links at the bottom of the page if you would like to follow me! Every day we will have new challenges and recipes, encouragement and love.

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!
HOW TO DO A KICK DOWN CRUNCH!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
